In game one of a four game series the Colorado Rockies will visit the Arizona Diamondbacks. This series starts off with a double header on Friday, this will be about game 1.
Both teams come into Friday looking to end the season on a high note in their last series, as neither have a chance to enter a playoff bubble in October. The Rockies enter this with a 22-34 record and are 13-13 away from Coors field. The disappointment of a season has ended with some speculation as all-star third baseman Nolan Arenado was placed on the injured list with what appears to be some ACL issues.
Some have suggested that Nolan placed himself on the IR because of disappointment with how the season has played out but to be honest, the Rockies are not in contention and with there being no reason to risk reinjury, I believe he (and the doctors) made the right decision.
The Rockies still come into this matchup with some firepower with the likes of Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story. Story has been hitting well in his last 15 hitting .310/.355/.517, despite those numbers he has just 15 HR and 6 RBIs in that span.
He does have struggles against Gallen of the Diamondbacks, against which he has hit 2-8 in his career. Blackmon is .308 .362 .462 on the season and leads the team with 40 RBIs in the shortened season.
The Diamondbacks come into the first game of this double header riding a two game win streak against the Rangers where they scored seven runs in each of the two games. Despite the previous two games Arizona has had a very disappointing season and will be happy to put 2020 in their rearview and enter the offseason looking to make some changes.
One thing that does hold promise in the future of the Arizona Diamondbacks is their starting pitcher for this matchup, Zach Gallen. He was a sneaky Cy young hopeful in the first part of the season where in his first eight starts he had a ERA of 1.8.
After lesser starts in each of his last three he will look to end the season strong and cement himself in the future of this ball club.
Even though they have been eliminated from contention for almost a week now the Diamondbacks have seemingly found something to play for and used that in a couple forceful wins against the Rangers.
Playing at home to end the season will help as they have a considerably better record than away from the desert.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams are out of playoff contention so the only ones paying attention will be diehard fans and those of us who have a little more going on in this one.
While I understand that the Rockies are the better team on paper I really think that they have turned a page on this season and I expect Gallen to take advantage of a semi dejected lineup and will put a little extra into this start before the offseason. I’m gonna ride the hotter bats of Arizona and take the Diamondbacks to take game one in this double header.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Diamonbacks ML
If you’re looking for a total play I would lean on the side of the under. Both pitchers are capable and have something to prove in their final game while both lineups are counting the pitches until they can call it a season.
